I myself lived on Tull Lake in White Lake Township and now I live on White Lake in White Lake Township.  I love the lake living life style, and I think you will to.  That is why I love helping lakefront buyers and sellers.  I believe it is the best place to live.   One of the biggest comments I get from my lake home buyers is why didn’t I do this years ago.  Nothing is more relaxing to come home after a long day at work and just relax on the deck looking out on the water.  You don't have to pack up the car to drive to the lake you live there!   You will be able to be relaxing on the water while other people are driving 3 -5 hours in traffic coming back home from up north.   Your neighbors and friends will drop by on the boat and ask you if you want to take a short ride on the lake now and then.  A lakefront home in the area makes it so much easier for you to invite people over.  What is nice is that they can go home and not have to spend the night.    You will find the friendships you form on the lake will be life long friendships.  So come explore the many lakes in Oakland County MI and the other four southeastern Michigan Counties have to offer.
